BRONXNET RELEASES HISTORIC BRONXTALK LEDGER
In advance of Wednesday’s 20th Anniversary show of BronxTalk, the borough’s first television talk show, BronxNet has posted the historic ledger of all the shows and guests who have appeared on the program since its inception in 1994.
In the 20 years there have been 953 editions of the program and the list of all the shows and guests provides a unique chronicle of Bronx politics,issues, communities, local leaders, and arts and culture over the past two decades.
“It’s a remarkable document to go through,” said Gary Axelbank, the Bronxite who has hosted the program since day one. “You would be hard-pressed to find an important figure, significant issue, or Bronx community that hasn’t at one time or another – or more – appeared on BronxTalk. I’m very proud of what we have accomplished.”
“This BronxTalk library is a tremendous public resource,” said BronxNet Executive Director Michael Max Knobbe. “BronxTalk host Gary Axelbank, along with the entire BronxNet team and all of our neighbors in the Bronx, can celebrate 20 years of discussion and debate as we continue building community together.”
The taping of the 20th anniversary show that will include a look at historic archives and a chance for the public to speak on the program, will take place on Wednesday, October 22 at the Andrew Freedman Home at 1125 Grand Concourse and 165th street beginning at 8:00pm.
